Re: [Game] Australopithecus [Tech Demo]

Actually, I decided to wait for #3476 to be decided upon before I do any more work on this...because from where I'm sitting, Minetest hasn't turned out to be the reliable foundation I hoped it would be.

Re: A plea for direction.

I've just committed all drafts with my ideas. That means, theoretically the repository is now holding all the ideas I have on how to improve the current situation. But I'm afraid that it actually boils down to "people need to get stuff done and they need to do this in a more organized way". Also, th...

A plea for direction.

I've started working with Minetest over a year and a half ago. It took me quite some time to get up to speed with Lua and Minetest, but roughly a year ago I released the first code into the wild and have been constantly improving it. I've also made a few pull requests and tickets, but have been read...

Re: Build Minetest iOS version for,get $1000

I dislike the GNU licenses for this very reason, they are rather complicated in the name of "freedom", even though they are rather restrictive. Well, they are about *preserving* freedom, not granting absolute freedom. The BSD likes on the other side are about granting absolute freedom, without pres...

Re: Build Minetest iOS version for,get $1000

The main principle of Minetest (and most of free software) is that it's completely disinterested. Proposing a lucrative job for Minetest is simply violating our principles. Uh, that is not quite correct for FLOSS in general. Pretty much every FLOSS license allows you to sell the software and/or ser...

There are actually now only two things remaining that I'd like to get done before I'll push a new update to the server, the correct flooding of caves close to the ocean, and #3358 , which is still pending for some reason. The good news is, because stone alone is boring, I've added wood to the invent...

Re: [IDEA] Random first spawn

Spawn Usher is allowing you to do this, all you have to do is adjust the configuration...well, except the static spawns, there is no save mechanism to remember the spawn per player. You'd have to code that yourself by providing a provider and using a callback, like this: -- Should be persisted some...

Re: Inventory Death Drop: Drops the player inventory on deat

I've just added that a random percentage of the inventory can be destroyed/retained upon death.

So a certain, random percentage of the inventory can be destroyed before it is dropped (and therefor unrecoverable lost), and another percentage can be retained, meaning the player keeps it.

@stu I have a copy (with changes to the animations and cleaned of duplicate vertexes) in my player-model mod.

And there is Rius mod which has such functionality, the head moving I mean.

Re: [Game] Australopithecus [Tech Demo]

Currently it can be extended from the outside, the biome system I mean. I plan to add further support for that (even to allow to register more modules and inject them), so that would, in my opinion, need to find its way into the C++ version. But as said, that is currently all very theoretical...very...

Re: [Game] Australopithecus [Tech Demo]

Technically, there is no hindrance I guess, once it stabilizes I mean. Though, it does make a lot of assumptions which are not exactly compatible with the current biome system, and that will get only worse the further I go.

I'm posting an update because of, at least for some, an important change: Australopithecus is now licensed under LGPL v2.1, no longer under BSD. Note that this does only apply to the "core" of the game, all the mods that have a repository of their own will stay under a BSD license. In other news, I'...
